certus QC – mycoplasma
According to academic studies a considerable amount of cell cultures is contaminated by mycoplasma. In order to control contamination and insure the safety of the products, the cell cultures have to be tested regularly using a reliable and sensitive assay. Current testing procedures are challenging for the pharmaceutical industry and leading R&D laboratories, as they are time-consuming, laborious and costly. Our molecular mycoplasma rapid test provides reliable (10 CFU/ml LOD) results in just 30 minutes. It requires less than 5 minutes hands-on time and runs on any real-time PCR cycler. Furthermore, the testing sample volume is reduced to a few microliters.
Therefore, our rapid, reliable and robust mycoplasma assay allows you to test as often as needed. It significantly reduces the risk of undiscovered contaminations saving time, labor and money.
